About School Telehealth Kits

The Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN) has the unique purpose of connecting people and technologies to improve education and healthcare in Utah. In line with this purpose, UETN seeks to bridge the gap between education and telehealth by providing school nurses with telehealth technology, in order to perform virtual visits and asses the health of students remotely.

School nurses play a vital role in schools and communities by providing a number of services including direct care of student, chronic disease management, screenings, and now COVID-19 related duties among other things.

UETN has partnered with 19Labs to deliver approximately 175 telehealth kits to 21 rural school districts in Utah funded by the CARES Act. Our goal is to place the telehealth kits in the schools that need them the most.

The goal of this project is to reduce the amount of time school nurses spend traveling to visit each school and improving access to care and the overall health of students in Utah.
